Natalie Kane goes by a couple of different nicknames, “Nat”, “Kaner” but has also been called the “fastest British woman in Motocross”. As nicknames go, that last one may be a bit more formal than the others, but the effort that went into earning it makes it all the more special.
Born in Loughbrickland in 1991, a small village in County Down in Northern Ireland, Nat competed in her first GP at fifteen. She now competes at British, International and World Championship levels.
There was also that first Red Plate at the FIM Women’s Motocross World Championship in Valkenswaard.
She was also the first female to ride the Hawkestone International Series in 2015.
However, it’s not been an easy journey and there have been setbacks along the way. Concussion in 2014 meant she couldn’t compete in Germany. A broken clavicle sustained at the challenging Hawkestone Park circuit meant that Nat couldn’t compete in the opening two rounds at Quatar and Thailand in 2015.
She has broken her wrist seven times, has fought back from leg fractures, shoulder and clavicle injuries.
Motocross is an unforgiving sport and unfortunately some injuries are harder to protect against than others. It certainly takes formidable dedication to compete at these highest levels.
Now racing for BRT (BERGMANS MOTOR) Racing Team Natalie is based this year in Lommel in Belgium.
